Tinoisamoa re-signs with Bears

SHARE Tinoisamoa re-signs with Bears

The Bears re-signed linebacker Pisa Tinoisamoa to a one-year deal, the club announced today.

Tinoisamoa opened the season as the starting strongside linebacker, but he suffered a knee injury in the season opener at Green Bay.

He returned in Week 6, against the Atlanta Falcons, but he suffered another knee injury that sidelined him for the remainder of the season.

He finished the year with five tackles and one forced fumble.

A former second-round pick of the St. Louis Rams, Tinoisamoa is athletic and versatile but durability has been a concern.

Tinoisamoa turns 29 in July, and he obviously wanted a one-year deal in hopes to cashing in next off-season.

But, he’ll have his work cut out for him to start alongside Brian Urlacher and Lance Briggs; Nick Roach played pretty well in his absence, and he’ll start training camp atop the depth chart at strongside linebacker.
